In this final collection of reviews covering the last 10 discs from the RCA Albums Collection from 2016, Justin examines Elvis' shift further towards the country genre leading up to the end of his life. The final 3 discs of the 10 showcase rare recordings ranging from amateur demos and home recordings to long-lost studio cuts and jam sessions, allowing Justin to make the case that these may be the most essential tracks to filling in the blanks of Elvis' musical development.
Finally, Justin wraps up the 6 days of discussion with a heartfelt look back at the undertaking of the project and what he learned.
Later this season, Justin will be reviving the Blue Suede Reviews album reviews to take a closer look at the albums left off this collection, including various compilations released within Elvis' lifetime, as well as a handful of unique, non-compilation albums released posthumously, such as Elvis in Concert, Guitar Man, The Complete Million Dollar Quartet and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra releases.
